Unique "Accidental Rock" Pouf or Ottoman by Atelier Remy & Veenhuizen, 2017

6,000.00

“Accidental Rock” is a two-seater ottoman, pouf or bench made from old woolen blankets that are cut in strokes and glued together on a textile base in a similar manner to their well-known "Accidental Carpets". The pouf is handmade with blankets that are available at that moment; patterns and colors are constantly changing and therefore each pouf is unique.

Pouf measures 17 x 54 x 28 in.

The carpet and pouf design were recently acquired by the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.

From LACMA's site:

"This rug and pouf provide an outstanding example of Tejo Remy and René Veenhuizen’s ethos and practice of incorporating “upcycled” materials. It was designed in collaboration with Remy’s wife, the site-specific artist Tanja Smeets. In 2008, the three were commissioned by a foundation in their native Netherlands to create a more pleasant environment for children being treated for epilepsy at the Hans Berger Clinic in Oosterhout. As Smeets explains, they created colorful rugs because: "To minimize the effects of an epileptic fit, you need warmth and softness: an environment with rounded forms and lots of places to sit and lie down. We chose used wool blankets as our basic material.” This solution to the problem of a cold and sterile environment was enthusiastically received not only by the patients and their families, but also by people responding to the intimacy and sheer joy the design invokes and has resulted in many other commissions for the rugs, including the one purchased for LACMA’s collection.

Each is unique in shape and color and produced by hand in the designers’ studio in Utrecht, the Netherlands. Designed in collaboration with Tanja Smeets.
